Socialite Bujy Bikwa has reportedly been released on R2 000 bail following his appearance at the Midrand Magistrates court today. The former radio presenter now podcaster, spent an entire weekend behind bars for allegedly assaulting rapper and entrepreneur Boity Thulo.
Bujy was apparently denied bail on Friday and it was postponed to Wednesday. According to the Citizen, Bujy’s bail amounted to R2000 and had conditions that include him keeping his distance from Boity and to not contact any of the witnesses who were present during the said assault occurred.
A traumatised Boity, did not attend the bail hearing as she has also removed her statement addressing the situation on social media. It read as follows:
“It is with deep sadness to state that I was indeed an unfortunate victim of a vicious physical assault and I have since opened a case against the culprit, which I am following with a keen interest. I do not wish to comment on the matter any further (at this time).
“I respectfully request some space as I try to find a way to heal both physically and emotionally from this traumatic experience. I have all the faith in our Criminal Justice System and implore everyone to stand firmly against GBV.”
According to City Press, witnesses said they were arguing about ancestors and Bujy wanted to see of Boity’s ancestors would be able to protect her from him as he proceeded to throw a bottle at her. Her bloodied face was also left bruised and she was then rushed to the hospital.
Boity finally broke her silence to Sunday World about the matter and said, “I could tell he was becoming agitated, but I did not think he would take it that far. Before he attacked me, he said ‘let’s see if your ancestors will protect you’ and proceeded to throw a glass on my face,” she told the publication.
“I am in a bad place emotionally. I keep replaying this in my mind. Not only do I have to deal with the mental effects of his actions, I now have to see a plastic surgeon to see what can be done about the scars. In my line of work, I can’t afford to have a scar. That’s why I had the foresight to take out insurance for things like this,” she added.
Sol Phenduka spoke about this issue and said Boity has a special place n his heart and they also work with Bujy.
“It’s sensitive, it’s close to home. We know Bujy, he’s family on the podcast network. Boity holds a special place in my heart,” he said.
“When I was down and out, I reached out to her and she helped me. I remember my granny had just passed away and I was a mess at that time and I didn’t want my family to see me like that. No one in my family knew where I was, and I was renting a small place in town.
